Ebury, the global financial services firm, announces that it is increasing its investment in Scotland with a series of strategic moves aimed at boosting their Scottish operations.

Nicholas Blurton has been appointed Key Account Director for Scotland to drive Ebury’s growth in the Scottish market. He joins from Western Union and brings over ten years of experience in Corporate Foreign Exchange.

In addition, Ebury announces a collaboration with The Scottish African Business Association (SABA), which aims to increase Scottish exports to Africa’s growing markets. This partnership is a strategic fit, given Ebury’s capabilities in managing transactions and currency exchange in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It follows Ebury’s significant multi-year partnership with Rangers Football Club, one of Scotland’s premier football clubs and global brand. As Ranger’s official Foreign Exchange transfer partner until the end of the 2025-26 season, this partnership highlights Ebury’s commitment to supporting key Scottish institutions and its economy.

Ebury has grown to operate with over 1,700 employers from over 38 offices in more than 25 countries, offering a comprehensive suite of financial services tailored to simplify the international trade needs of businesses.

Nicholas Blurton, Key Account Director at Ebury, commented: “With Santander’s backing, we’re excited to offer our financial solutions to facilitate global trade for businesses across Scotland. Our partnership with SABA, along with our new relationship with Rangers, strengthens Ebury’s market position and we look forward to supporting Scottish businesses as they expand internationally.”
